• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

playing a sunburst through a block logo head and script log 4x12.

These are crappy Polaroids given to me in 1968 by somebody who was at this gig. I thought they may be of some historical significance on this forum. Hard to see any detail about anything though.

Last one is not guitar related but the posters are cool. I have no idea what this venue was.

Hmm, is that a white front panel on the JTM45? Or just the lighting?

Somehow these photos look better posted here on the forum than the original Polaroids! Certainly bigger on the screen.

Fantastic! I'm a huge British Blues boom junkie. Love the poster art, too.
Looks like he using the Keef Burst, if I can see a Bigsby there..:hmm And John's got a Leslie!

Nice pics.....and a good place to put the horn section!

The ONLY place to put the horn section...except in the alley...:rofl

At first I thought that was a preamp tube sleeve, but it's probably Taylor's slide. Maybe it's both?....nah.

What is that behind the drummer? Some kind of ancient Brit multi plug receptacle gizmo?

Nice photos. Check out "Diary of a Band" if you haven't already. I still listen to a vinyl copy, and it just plain kills.

Keef Hartley died in November last year not 2 miles from where I'm typing. A sad loss and an unsung hero in many ways.
